Main Street Port Clinton
Design Committee

​The Design Committee’s purpose is to create an attractive, coordinated and quality image of the community by capitalizing on its unique assets and heritage. Its responsibilities do not lie solely with the improvement of traditional commercial buildings. It should be involved in all aspects of design that have an impact on the overall image of the downtown, including analyzing parking, developing a logo, coordinating window displays and acting as a design resource for property owners.

The Design Committee is working on a number of projects including but not limited to the following:
  • Continuing to beautify the downtown with public improvements (benches, planters, trash receptacles, bicycle racks, ash urns)
  • Coordinating seasonal plantings in downtown streetscape planters
  • Updating Downtown Architectural Hunt
  • Organizing downtown streetscape of holiday décor
  • Creating Design Guidelines and Standards for downtown buildings
The Committee’s members should include people who are qualified — either by profession or volunteer interest and experience — to supervise its projects, such as architects, landscapers, interior designers, graphic artists, sign painters, contractors, historic commission representatives, artists and citizens interested in good design. It might also include a downtown property owner and the city’s building inspector.
